MBUK's June issue is on sale now!

Packed with riding inspiration from both home and abroad, this is what you can expect in the latest MBUK

There’s a bit of a wild theme to this month’s MBUK, down to both the riders we’ve ridden with and the places we’ve ridden.

A quartet of mountain bike legends kick things off as we join Cédric Gracia, Richie Schley, Brett Tippie and Geoff Gulevich on a high altitude adventure in the Italian Dolomites.

Up in Scotland we join Enduro World Series pro Joe Barnes and his pals (aka. The Dudes of Hazzard) as they pilot their campervan into unchartered territories on The Isle of Harris. As it happens, this remote and unspoiled island is a haven of two-wheeled fun.

Wild in a different sense of the word is Norway’s Hillbilly Huckfest. This bike festival is a one of a kind and our staff writer Ed headed there to witness the jump sending, beer swilling, guitar thrashing madness first hand.

This month we take a close look at women’s specific bikes, examining the developments that have taken place over the last few years and explain what you should look for.

We also look at a bike that might not be women’s specific, but is ridden by one special woman, Tahnée Seagrave. Learn more about her Transition TR11 and how she sets it up for the rigours of World Cup racing.

Bike test this month looks at what you can get for under £1,000. Is it worth going full-suss or keeping it rigid at the rear-end? We pick a winner from a line-up of Boardman, Diamondback, Jamis and Voodoo machines.

At higher price points, we swing a leg over Yeti’s new SB100 XC bike and find out first hand how Finnish brand Pole’s cutting edge, CNC machined monster copes when the going gets rough.
